My freezer compartment had practically all melted in less than 12 hours which surprised me, considering how overfrozen that thing was. Eventually, with the help of a bread knife (too scared to use a tomato-chopping knife) I managed to rip whole chunks of ice out. This morning I came back to a kitchen floor like Lake Baikal. At 2,442 feet, (744.4 metres) Lake Baikal is the scariest (ie deepest) lake in the whole world. I would LOVE to go swimming there. Right at the deepest spot. Ideally I'd like to dive off a boat to swim in Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench ~ 35,814 feet deep (10,916 metres). When I was in India I once swam out to the fishing boats, which were tethered far enough off shore to stop tourists bothering them. The water must have been about 40 foot deep. When I changed positions from swimming to treading water my toes were cold. Which scared the living crap out of me.
This video just shows 'em getting vaporized by by fireball and (further out) blown to bits by the base surge and blast wave. I don't know why I'm posting this up. But anyway here goes:~~~
Nuclear attack on Sheffield. This was the BBC's alternative to The Day After. This clip shows more realistically the kind of precautions and action that would take place if a nuclear attack really were considered imminent.
I suspect if they really did think we were about to be nuked, they wouldn't say anything.
Safest place you can be in a nuclear attack is as far underground as possible. The bomb explodes thousands of feet up. A deep tube station will protect you. That's if you really WANT to survive. I wouldn't!
